    Purging....accomplished!

    After spending 2 weekends working on my sewing room purging fabric scraps and yardage that I will never use, i think that I am done! I removed one folding table that hid a few of those rolling plastic 3-drawer units. I took the table down and replaced it with the bookcase. I used the large Closet Maid fabric drawers to store the fabric that I am keeping. They hold a lot! The bookcase opened up an additional 13" of floor space, too. I feel like I can breathe now!

    sorry for the duplicate photo.

    congratulations to you! I've been doing that but it is so daunting and it isn't getting done. In the meantime I can't get any sewing done and have been walking around stacks everywhere.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I have been cleaning in mine too. have not taken any pictures yet, I am sending some of my stash that I won't use to some people who have requested/are in need of fabric, esp if newbies and for some special fabrics. Have quite a lot upstairs I need to get to also.

    It does get to the point where I am immobilized looking at my piles, etc and I have to regroup before starting a new project.

    Looks great; and that stained glass piece in the window...I have one either just like or very similar to it that I made before I got into quilting. Mine is shades of red.

    ​Great job! It always makes the space seem bigger when you can store upwards rather than outwards.
